it. according to the latest quinnipiac university/new york times/cbs news poll of likely voters, it's actually related -- >> no, it's not. >> president obama leads romney by 10 percentage points in ohio. no republican has lost and then won the presidency. the president is up nine points in florida and has opened up a 12-point lead in pennsylvania. in the same poll, president obama leads mitt romney in his handling of the economy in all three states. 51% of polled voters say the president would do the better job. >> okay, let's go back to the last slide, guys. and mark halperin, let's talk to you. i know you agree with me that the media is liberal. guess what? republicans have somehow managed to win despite that media liberal bias. you've said it repeatedly on this show. so despite that fact, mitt romney is not getting crushed in all three of these states because of the liberal media bias. what's happening there, and why is he losing so badly, especially in ohio? >> well, it's very unlikely the president will win those states by those margins, but these numbers are not out of line dr

is obama taking the lead for the first time in who voters trust going forward. >> and he doesn't have a message that is consistent. because in ohio, he confused his tax message. so if he is going to offer tax ve s amount of money because i'm going to eliminate deductions, but president obama actually didn't inease your taxes, which was a misstatement of his past -- in the last 48 hours, he has completely muddled his taxmessage, and you c dot rliann against an incumbent president who's popular. >> the romney people thought that this was going to be a referendum on barack oma and that they wouldn't have to put forward new ideas. here we have a situation where the president hasn't told us anything about what he's going to do in the second term. heet awit. you know, i had this thought the other day with the debates coming up. i can't remember a single thing that bill clinton said or did in the 1996 debates against bob dole. and i think that that is exact what barack obama'soal i or neew we >> and you know, joe, the thing that's so fascinating is that 've ended up, because both candidates
's an unnecessary attempt to roll back voter rights. will many, many voters be confused and unable to comply? joining me now is john avlon. listen to mrs. obama over the weekend. >> we cannot let anyone discourage us from casting our ballots. we cannot make anyone make it feel unwelcome in the voting booth. it's up to us to make sure that in every election, every voice is heard and every vote is counted. that means making sure our laws preserve that right. monitoring the polls to make sure every eligible voter can exercise that right. >> so john, so many new laws. so many different requirements now. poll workers are going to have a field day trying to figure out what it all means. is there the potential for chaos at the polls come november? >> is there the potential? absolutely. we're changing the rules. that leads to a degree of uncertainty. people who haven't had to show id befo i.d. before in certain states will have to do so. some folks may be afraid of that. we have a tortured history of voting rights in this country. laws strike an emotional button. we have instances in the past of vot
for obama, 52-44, in ohio. that's significant. okay. now, did you know this? today is national voter registration day, the first ever national voter registration day. you have celebrities, you have civic organizations, grassroots groups, universities, all kinds of people encouraging folks to register and to commit to actually voting. and how is this for words of encouragement to latino americans. quote, we need for the latino community to stop the bs and understand that the latin community in america needs them to wake up and actually engage. i just don't think they understand how important it is that one vote actually does count. those strong words coming from my next guest, wilmer valderrama, actor, activist and the 2012 co-chair of voto latino. welcome. nice to meet you. >> thank you very much. how are you? >> good. i'm great. you say in that quote that latino americans, you know, may not understand that their votes actually count. why? >> yeah, i just think that a lot of it also comes from, i mean, heritage somehow. i think for the history of a lot of our culture in the united st
. as you said, i remember during past elections, every losing candidate has had this. the hillary voters in the 2008 primary had their own circle. they were convinced that the support for obama was way overstated. you were totally right about 2004, the 2002. like every election this happens, but the weird how this really happened in the last week was kind of remarkable. >> isn't this -- i think this is sort of a subset of a larger trend on the right? it's been going on for a really long time. there's a sort of combination of self-pity and sort of feeding the idea that they are victims of this massive conspiracy by the left to lie about everything and that they are truly the majority. i've been calling it the fun house mirror. i love your characterization of it even more. but there is this notion that everything is a lie. climate change is a lie. the idea that liberals are just lying to you all the time. this distrust of media, distrust of numbers, distrust of data. everything is a lie. >> it's also funny because a lot of the paul ryan supporters, it's not politics. it's math. liberals ta

of voters. >> bill: that issue has penetrated down to where people know and think about it. >> definitely. in part because the obama campaign has tried to make sure it penetrating. >> bill: and then you have daddy days, if you only release one year that could be a fluke so you could release 12 years. >> right. he obviously made the calculation that releasing more than two years would just cause problems, because he has a very complicated portfolio for sure. >> bill: right. conda is joining us from mobile alabama. >> caller: good morning. i wanted to make a comment about president obama not meeting with the leaders. i don't understand why it is a big deal -- i am fed up even with the liberal media always harping on what ht obama doesn't do. what would be the point of him meeting with them at this point? he does communicate with them. and by the way my name is spelled with a k. >> bill: i'm sorry, peter, it's konda with a k. we will correct that. i do understand also he is president of the united states. it is the general assembly and historically when the president goes to
